              • Older travelers
                8.4

                Catered to older tour groups. dining room and Bar area had no appeal.Mass production of food. If you were not with a tour group there was no place to enjoy a quiet drink or dinner

                No Bar area for guests other than a tour group. There was little selection for dinner.

              • Older travelers
                4.2

                Its position on Lake Como although parking was difficult at times.

                Most of the staff were rude, there were exceptions. The hotel is run-down. It is advertised as being in Menaggio but isn't. We were told on arrival Menaggio was a 5 to 10 minute walk away, that is rubbish.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Very nice hotel, recently refurbed, comfy beds, clean room and fantastic view. Very centrally located for bars / restaurants and ferry crossing to bellagio.

                would be better if you didn't have to wear a swimming cap for going in the pool, food wasn't brilliant.

                Location, Hotel Staff and facilities

                Breakfast was terrible. Poor food presentation; For a high class hotel, the presentation was awful

              • Single
                6.2

                The lobby was nice and big. The hotel was certainly grand in its day. My room had a good size balcony and lovely view. The staff were friendly. There are a lot of tour groups, so, the lobby was always filled with happy, friendly, people in the evenings. Made for a fun atmosphere.

                My room did not contain any of the standard amenities (e.g. shampoo,water glasses). Breakfast was chaotic and not good (mass production for all the tour groups), so, for the money, I wasn't impressed. I also needed internet access and discovered that I could only get access from the ground floor lobby. I left after two nights, just not the right fit for me.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The location of the hotel on the lake and staff were great. Highly recommend

                The breakfast content and presentation were awful. It was worse than a college dorm and equal with a prison setting. Display was not up to par with a Hotel such as this one

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Excellent position at the lake with great view from the front rooms. Nicely decorated and clean rooms, good interior spaces.

                Room did not provide shampoos. Also, most staff besides receptionist do not speak English...Probably typical Italian but at least they should give it a try...Receptionist received the money during check out and she did not even say "thank you for the stay"!

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Room was on 5th floor with a balcony overlooking the lake and across to Ballagio. It was spectacular.

                We were unaware that it was a significant stop for tour groups. The dinner catered for these groups. We paid 15 euro with drinks included for dinner. You get quantity but not quality. Shame to waste the beauty of the region with this type of dinner (unless you want low cost).

              • Couple
                7.0

                Great value, nice view, rooms were quiet and easy to catch the ferry to Bellagio.

                Meals were average.....eat elsewhere. The hotel caters for large bus groups, so you have to contend with that. Just eat elsewhere and avoid the crowd, great if you have a car, parking was easy.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                Very helpful staff. Wonderful location on Lake Como and close to other quaint towns on the lake such as Bellagio. Close to ferry. We had a very large room with view onto the lake--excellent value. Loved the complimentary coffee and hot chocolate in the evening on the veranda.

                Floor was a little dusty in our room.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                wonderful lake view from the window. clean and big room/bathroom. great water pressure on the shower. new and big flat screen TV. quite beautiful inside of the building. next to the ferry port, convenient.

                quality of the breakfast was poor. all juices were diluted too much that taste almost like a water. they turn off the light while we were still eating breakfast.(because it was 10am and breakfast is till 10am...) we were perhaps unlucky to be woken up by (we thought it was) a false fire alarm at 5am, went on and off for 3 times, but the hotel staff didn't know why it went off...it was kind of scary and annoying experience.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Nice, clean well decorated room with good sized balcony. Stunning lake view and handy location for the ferry.

                Before booking, it is essential to check that there wont be 6 coachloads of rampaging teenagers also booked in to the hotel as it totally spoiled the experience. The noise until 4.00am was unbearable.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                great location. great building and room was very large with a view of the lake.

                very large groups while we were there so don't expect quiet and peaceful.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The staff was excellant and extremely helpful. They gave us a free upgrade to an upper lakeview room and our fifth floor vantage point gave us an excellant view of Lake Como and Bellagio. Even though our room was right off the stairs we heard virtually no noise from outside of the room. The dining facilites were very nice and there was a good variety of cuisine to choose from.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                The staff was great. The location was excellent. Very good value for money.

                Room service does not exist. They rarely answer the phone and never bring to your room what they said that they will.
